Jérôme Savary
Birth: Jun. 27, 1942
Death: Mar. 4, 2013
Levallois-Perret
Departement des Hauts-de-Seine
Île-de-France, France

French theater director and actor born in Argentina. He and his family moved to Paris when he was a little child. In 1961 he moved to New York, where he associated with Count Basie, Lenny Bruce, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Thelonious Monk. In 1962 he returns to Argentina until 1965, after completing his obligatory military service, and returned to Paris where he founded his own company "Grand Magic Circus" where he presented his important musical comedies: "Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme" (1981), "La Périchole" (1982), "The Merry Widow" (1983), "Le Voyage dans la Lune" (1986), "The Magic Flute" (1985), "Cabaret" (1986), "La Légende de Jimmy" (1990) "La Cenerentola" (2001), "Irma la Douce" (2000), "Zazou, une histoire d'amour sous l'Occupation" (2003), "Carmen" (2004), "Rigoletto" (2006), "The Barber of Seville" (2006) and "Looking for/A la Recherche de Josephine - New Orleans for Ever" (2006). In 2012 presented in Paris his latest musical "La fille à marins". His work had widened the appeal of musical theater in France, combining genres as musical comedy with opera and operetta. In collaboration with the Spanish Quim Monzo wrote "El tango de Don Juan", which premiered in Barcelona, and also composed the song "Pleure" for Richard Elfman's film "Forbidden Zone". From 1988 to 2000 he directed the National Theatre de Chaillot, and then the Opera Comique, from 2000 to 2005. Was decorated Knight of the Légion d'honneur and also Knight of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and in 1987 received the Molière Award for her show "Cabaret". He was considered one of the "enfant terribles" of French theater. Often their stagings hit the headlines because of its irony and its ability to break the taboos. Cause of death: cancer. (bio by: Errete)
